Get ready for the ultimate bass for musicians who need an superior playability, tone and comfort that is all wrapped up in an affordable package. Introducing the Ibanez EHB1005 5 string Ergonomic Headless Bass.
The EHB’s headless construction and specially designed body enable the player to maintain a similar playing position whether seated or standing - no more awkward postures or straining to get comfortable when playing.
Featuring an American Basswood body in Black Flat finish, with a 5 piece roasted Maple/Walnut neck with a Birdseye Maple fretboard this bass was designed to look as good as it sounds - and both are top notch.
This bass was also designed for comfort. The top half of the back of the body is slanted, which allows the bass to rest slightly closer to the player’s body for better control and a more ergonomic feel. In addition, the contoured, ergonomic design and chambered body make for a lightweight, well-balanced, and comfortable instrument that’s excellent for long sets or practice session - so say goodbye to backaches and sore feet after a day's worth of playing.
And did we mention the playability? The roasted Maple in the 5 piece neck is heat treated to increase stability, durability, moisture resistance, and tolerance of temperature changes, and, in conjunction with the MR5HS Mono Rail adjustable bridge, you'll keep in tune and intonated with no problems.
Need to get high when you're playing? No worries there, with the extra carving on the back of the body behind the lower horn for easier upper fret access. And, for players digging-in deep, there's a detachable Finger Ramp that is easily added on and is included with this bass for comfortable finger picking.
The MR5HS bridge is designed especially for the EHB basses and features wide intonation range. Each bridge piece is independently and securely attached to the body for maximum vibration transfer, and the saddles are adjustable for string spacing +/-1.5mm, answering every bassist’s individual string spacing demands, no matter what playing style. Teflon washers are used on each tuner for a smooth tuning action.
Get ready for these bonuses.... Schaller S-Lock strap lock pins and a Neutrik locking jack hold your strap and cable securely, allowing you to focus on the magic of making music and not the tedious worries of being on the road, in the studio or playing your favorite jam night.
